A perspective on how the indigenous people of Colombia (tribes) understand our relationship with technology and where it leads us.

This Colombian-Lithuanian enlightening entertainer mixes music, comedy, and creative interaction to present the Aruhuaco people’s ancestral wisdom and its take on human nature, emotional needs, AI, the singularity, and progress in a fun and engaging manner. “Their lessons usually make little sense at first, but later provide plenty of transcendental eureka moments”.

Here are just 3 of them:

1. Enjoy the Silence: Silence is sacred. If you can enjoy silence with someone, you have something special. It is a solemn expression of appreciation. Unfortunately, “silence” does not exist in the digital realm.

2. the Machine: We are a reflection of our environment and circumstances. Machines are reflections of us; our qualities and faults alike. We like our machines to be human (like us) but not too much, because we are ultimately scared of our own human nature.

3. Useless to be more civilized if it only makes us worse: Technology should be there to serve us and not the other way around. A sense of balance and the “bigger picture” is necessary for technology to solve issues and address needs rather than create new ones.

“This is CONNECTION” will last for one hour and then will be followed by good vibes DJ music and mingling.
